is placing on future generations when it the most disingenuous claims that has been made over and over it if you like your current health care plan you can keep it. here is a headline in my local paper. employers ready to dump healthcare. under the house bill, and eight deserve penalty is to them providing coverage. -- is it cheaper than -- an 8% penalty is cheaper than providing coverage. this bill is a cruel hoax. a business decision will dump these people out on the public plan. bu>> >> women of america, republicans want you to believe
3:01 am
that our reform bill is poisoned capita than doing nothing is better for the nation. it is the status quo that is poisoned. women are forced to settle for less health care at a higher price. we pay as much as 50% more of them men, and practice of discrimination that is legal and 38 states. this bill prohibits insurance companies from charging women more for the same coverage. today there turned away from buying insurance due to pre- existing conditions. so-called pre-existing conditions such as domestic violence, pregnancy, and c-section. but this bill makes it illegal to deny coverage due to any pre-existing condition, including breast cancer. today, less than half of america's women can get insurance through work because they stay at home, work at small businesses or work part time. through this bill, every woman can buy coverage through the exchange that will cover maternity and preventive care.

this is why women in america need this health care reform bill and why i strongly support this legislation. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back her time. for what purpose does the gentlelady from washington rise? >> i request to address the house for one minute and revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, so ordered. mrs. mcmorris rodgers: as the house proposes the latest way to have the government take over the health care bill, i want to say that there's many things wrong with this million-dollar -- billion-dollar health care plan. it's bad for our economic health, it's a prescription for higher deficits and job losses. worst of all is what it does to women, families, seniors and small businesses. women make 2/3 of the health care decisions in our country. as mothers, wive, and daughters we work to protect the family members around us. the vast majority of american -- america's health care professionals are women, 90% of
3:03 am
doctors, almost a third of doctors. if pelosi's health care proposal becomes law, women will no longer be able to make those responsible decisions for their families, government bureaucrats will. let's not take away power from moms and turn it over to the government and call that reform. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back her time. the gentleman from new york. >> i ask permission to address the house for one minute and revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, so ordered. >> i rise today in strong support of health insurance reform for many reasons, but especially how it helps the 50 million living in rural areas. there are problems rural americans face when it come toths current health care system, lack of choice and affordable health care -- health insurance and lack of access to providers and lack of access to quality preventive care.
3:04 am
our health insurance reform bill, h.r. 3962, addresses all these issues and more for rural americans. 15% of all people living in rural areas live in poverty and one in five uninsured americans lives in rural areas. this bill will extend coverage and the public option will give options to americans in rural areas. it will train thousands of new doctors, nurses and other health care providers and put them on the ground, where they're needed, especially in our rural areas. finally this bill gives all americans prix access to preventive care and encourages and rewards high quality care. it is what we need in rural america and across the country. thank you, mr. speaker, i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentlelady from north carolina rise? ms. foxx: permission to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, ordered. ms. foxx: for months, millions of concerned citizens voiced their strong opposition to government takeover of health care. yet speaker pelosi health care
3:05 am
plan does nothing to control the rising costs of health care. but struggling businesses that can't afford to provide health insurance coverage to their employers, employees to pay higher taxes. according to an economic model developed by president obama's economic advisor, an estimated 5.5 million jobs could be lost as a result of the taxes included in the pelosi health care plan. at a tame when several states are struggling, pushing policies that will raise taxes and increase job losses is the wrong direction to take our country. it's time for congress to reject the pelosi health care plan and start over on responsible health care reform. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back her time. for what purpose does the gentlelady from florida rise? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and revise and extend my remarks.

the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentlelady from pennsylvania rise? >> to address the house for one minute and revise and extend. 13r0eu7 without objection, so ord. >> finding a way for all americans to have health care has been a goal for decades. health care legislation before the house builds on the hard work done by three health committees over many months and responds to feedback from the american people. it builds on america's public-private system and it is
3:09 am
paid for. the legislation meets the goals of health reform, enhanced protection for those with health coverage, now, affordable coverage for individuals and small businesses, strengthening medicare for our seenor, improved delivery of care with better health outcomes for all americans, and the containment of rapidly rising costs of health care. the status quo is unaffordable and unsustainable. passing health care reform benefits all of us, families, seniors, businesses, and the nation. i look forward to voting for this historic legislation and meeting the goals of health care reform for all americans. now is the time to act. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back her time. for what purpose does the gentlelady from texas rise? ms. granger: to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, so ordered. ms. granger: mr. speaker, on september 12, taxpayers sent an unequivocal message that smaller government, limited
3:10 am
regulation, responsible spending and keeping government out of people's lives are principles that too many in washington need to be reminded of. hundreds of texans took to the streets in washington, d.c., to protest big government and the devastating policies the obama administration and this congress are pursuing. their voices were heard and we better not forget what they say. now, we need everyone's voice more than ever as we're asked to pass a $1.2 trillion government takeover of our health care system. through town hall meetings and the thousands of emails and letters we receive each week, my constituents have been clear. they don't like this bill. it's now congress' responsibility to listen to our districts and respond, representing the constituents who sent us here. they're speaking loud and clear and they expect a response. thank you. and i yield back my time.
3:11 am
the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back the balance of her time. for what purpose does the gentlelady from nevada rise? ms. titus: i ask permission to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, so ordered. ms. titus: thank you, mr. speaker. for the past six months i've talked with my constituents in southern nevada about the need for health care reform that lowers costs, improves access, increases choices and strengthens medicare. i solicited input from my constituents by sending them health care surveys, encouraging them to share their health care stories, holding congress on the corner. from roundtable discussions with doctors, providers and small business owners to town halls, i have listened to the concerns nevadans have about our current health care system as well as the proposed reform. one thing is clear, the status quo just is unacceptable. the legislation introduced in the house last week requires the comprehensive examination, and i will continue to carefully review all aspects of
3:12 am
the bill. but i'm pleased that the legislation includes important provisions that will help nevada's seniors, young adults, women and small businesses. from ending discrimination based on preexising -- pre-existing conditions and closing the doughnut hole, there are a number of very positives a pects of this bill -- aspects of this bill that i strongly support. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back the balance of her time. for what purpose does the gentleman from ohio rise? >> mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, so ordered. mr. boehner: mr. speaker and my colleagues, the american people have said that the number one thing they're concerned about with health care is the cost of health care. and the speak's 1,1990-page of government takeover of health care, raises the cost of insurance for america's families and will add to our
3:13 am
already exploding debt. the cost of the speaker's bill is now at $1.3 trillion and counting. it's a debt that will be paid for by our kids and our grandkids. and to make matters worse, it will increase taxes, impose job-killing mandates and cuts seniors' medicare benefits. there's a better way. republicans have outlined a plan to lower cost and expand access at a price our nation can afford. this includes letting families buy health insurance across state lines, allowing small businesses to pool together and offer health insurance to their employees at much lower costs, just like big businesses and unions can today, giving states the tools to create innovative references that lower costs and ending junk lawsuits that contributes to high health care costs. given all that's at stake, the american people deserve to see the republican's smart, physically -- fiscally
